Under the circumstances, Kerry would do better to praise Israel without the forked tongue.

    John "I served in Vietnam" Heinz Kerry is dumber than top soil. If Israel were an abject failure like every Islamic hell hole, Kerry and the usurper in the White House would be happy as hogs in mud. I'm sorry that productive, peaceful Jews have spoiled their wet dream.

  2. He is going to be another looser in the saga to win public opinion points. There has been twenty freaking years, and the problems are stiil there…. if you put corner israel, make sure you will not get dragged into this whole nasty mess at the end of the day, because there will not be Peace unless YOU PEOPLE RECOGNIZE ISRAEL RIGHTS TO SECURE BORDERS!

    John Kerry is an embarrassment to the US. Why waste words on him? Just when you think he couldn't get any more ridiculous, he opens his mouth again. Regardless, I keep writing in comments the same thing, & I'll continue until someone gets it. Polls continue to show that 40% or more Arabs who would be in the new "Palestine" would prefer to move to Israel if that happens. So why do we, including Bibi etc., continue to pretend it will happen? Rather, we should deport the arabs who don't like it in Israel. BTW, the Jordan valley isn't so safe. All the Pal towns have signs up at entrance forbidding Jews to enter. So if we get a flat tire etc on the road, where we get help? Deplorable.

  4. Mr. Kerry is a scumbag and a traitor to the USA and Israel. He was put in place, against the wishes of many Americans, by Obama who is even a worse traitor. Kerry would like to see Israel sink. I have no doubt about that. Israeli do not listen to Kerry and his false ideas. He is a snake.

  5. Kerry shut up! go home!

  6. John Mccord says:

    I would like to apoligise to all Israel for.john kerry. Our govt is out of control and the people no longer have any say in any thing.

  7. John Mccord says:

    The American people don't want him

  8. Dan Silagi says:

    Kerry is right. Consider: If Haredim take over in Israel, the US will be able to push the Israelis around because the Israelis will no longer be prosperous.

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.

Neither Secretary of State Kerry nor the president he serves seem to understand Russia’s goals in the Middle East.

President Obama, perhaps inadvertently, made the case for U.S.-Israel relations grounded in the most fundamental shared values.
